Hirelings are a special type of follower which the leader pays for their services. Once the total time of paid services expires, the hireling will make their way back home.
When you enter the room with a hireling, they may announce their availability for work. If you wish to hire them, simply provide them with an amount of money equal to their rate. Providing more money at any time will extend their length of service. Once hired, they become a follower, and obey the normal rules of following, including being subjected to the ORDER command.
- SAYTO (hireling name) REPORT SKILLS will cause the potential hireling to report out any abilities they have. You may do prior to hiring them.
